About the Author

London-born author Briar Kit Esme is best known for the prescient and allegorical novel ‘The Twenty-Five Deeds of Hanson Drake’. Published in 2013, the story follows the enigmatic songwriting starman Hanson Drake—a fictionalised stand-in for the late David Bowie (1947–2016)—during the final weeks of his life. Through critical and popular acclaim, ‘Hanson Drake’ has attracted favourable comparisons with a number of award-winning novels, including Paulo Coelho’s ‘The Alchemist’, for its simple feel-good narrative; Annie Proulx’s ‘The Shipping News’, for its epigrammatic literary style; and Jostein Gaarder’s ‘Sophie’s World’, for its wide-ranging philosophical ideas. Briar Kit is also the author of the operatic plaria ‘Hathaway—Eight Arias For A Bardic Life’, written to mark the quatercentenary of William Shakespeare’s death in 1616. Commissioned as a co-production for Helios Collective, Buxton Opera, and Copenhagen Opera, ‘Hathaway’ received its much-lauded world premiere at Buxton Festival in 2016. Briar Kit now publishes under noms de plume, while also working as a scriptwriter and librettist for opera, music, theatre, film, and television companies, and as a ghostwriter, editor, and consultant for world-renowned authors.
